77). Do not use a battery that is not included in the list. Battery
characteristics and a battery that does not match the specifications of
the electronic dictionary may result in abnormal operation or failure to
achieve the specified operation between battery charges.
• Your electronic dictionary does not come with a rechargeable battery
or a battery charger. If you want to use a rechargeable battery and
a battery charger, it is up to you to purchase them from a retailer,
wholesaler, or other source.
• The charge of the original battery that comes with this electronic
dictionary is consumed somewhat as the product spends time in
transit, storage, etc. Because of this, the original battery may not
provide the full amount of operation noted in the specifications (page
79).

similar pointed object to press
the RESET button on the back
of your electronic dictionary.
• When pressing the RESET button,
do not use a toothpick, lead
pencil, or any other object whose

five levels.
• The initial factory default setting is 3.
The brightness of the display will automatically dim to level 1 if you do
not perform any operation for about 30 seconds (under initial default
settings). Performing an operation will cause display brightness to return
to its normal level.
• You can adjust screen brightness and the time it takes until screen
illumination turns off. See “Illumination Duration Setting” and “Brightness
Setting” (page 68).
An icon in the upper right corner of the MENU screen shows the current
battery level.

Battery Level 2
Battery Level 1
• Power will turn off and the screen will go blank when the battery level
reaches 0.
• At battery level 1, the electronic dictionary may not operate normally,
may suddenly turn off, or may exhibit other abnormal operation.
Replace the battery as soon as possible when battery level 1 is
indicated.
5
Battery Life
• Prolonged use of a bright display setting, and keeping the display
illuminated for long periods, can shorten battery life.
• When battery power is low, your electronic dictionary may suddenly
turn off or display the Battery Setting screen, without displaying the
low battery message first.

Important Precautions
• Never expose your electronic dictionary to fire. Doing so can cause the
battery to explode, creating the risk of fire and personal injury.
• Avoid temperature extremes. Do not locate your electronic dictionary
Introduction
Note the following important precautions whenever using your
electronic dictionary.
in direct sunlight, near a window, near a heater, etc.
• Under very low temperatures, display response may slow down or

fail entirely. This condition is temporary and operation should resume
under normal temperatures.
Avoid areas subject to excessive moisture, dirt, and dust.
Never subject your electronic dictionary to strong impact, bending, or
twisting, do not carry it in the pocket of your trousers, and do not keep
it together with hard objects inside of a bag or briefcase.
Never place heavy objects on the electronic dictionary. Doing so can
cause the object to fall off and create the chance of personal injury.
Never try to take your electronic dictionary apart.
Never use a pen, pencil, or other sharp object to press keys.
To clean the exterior, wipe your electronic dictionary with a soft cloth
dampened in a weak solution of a mild neutral detergent and water.
Be sure to wring out any excess moisture from the cloth before wiping.
Never use benzene, thinners, or any other volatile agent for cleaning.
Doing so can remove the figures printed on the case or otherwise
damage the finish of the case.
Should the electronic dictionary ever start emitting smoke, strange
odor, or heat, or start exhibiting other strange behavior, stop using
it. Continued use creates the risk of fire and electric shock. Take the
following steps immediately.
1 Turn off power.
2 Contact your original retailer or authorized CASIO service centre.
Before assuming malfunction, be sure to check this manual for
possible remedies, and check to make sure your problem is not due to
low battery power or operational errors.
11
• Keep the electronic dictionary away from your chest (breast pocket,
etc.) if you are wearing a pacemaker or other medical device.
Magnetism from the electronic dictionary can affect a pacemaker or
other device. If you feel any abnormality, immediately move away from
the electronic dictionary and contact your physician.
• Never carry the electronic dictionary along with a magnetic card
(credit card, cash card, prepaid card, etc.) The electronic dictionary
uses components that generate a magnetic field, which can make a
magnetic card unusable.
LCD
• Never apply strong pressure to the LCD screen or subject it to strong
impact. Doing so can cause the glass to crack.
• Should the LCD glass ever break, avoid touching the liquid that may
leak from the LCD. Contact with LCD liquid can cause skin irritation.
• Should you accidentally get liquid leaking from the LCD in your mouth,
immediately rinse your mouth and contact your physician.
• Should liquid leaking from the LCD get into your eyes or onto your
skin, immediately rinse for at least 15 minutes and then contact your
physician.
• Due to limitations of the LCD used in this electronic dictionary, graphic
images may not appear as they do on your computer display in terms
of colour, etc.
Some display pixels may not light or may remain lit.
The liquid crystal panel used for the display is a product of very
high accuracy technology. The effective pixel rate of the display
is 99.99%, which means that no more than 0.01% of the pixels
do not light or remain lit at all times. This is normal and does not
indicate malfunction.
12
Location
• Never use your electronic dictionary in a hospital, in an aircraft, or in
any other location where operation of mobile telephones is controlled
or restricted.
• Avoid using your electronic dictionary in areas where electrostatic
charge is generated.
• CASIO COMPUTER CO., LTD. assumes no responsibility for any
loss or claims by third parties arising out of the use of this product.

Replacing the Battery
Replace the battery as soon as possible after the message “The
battery is low.” appears on the display.
You should replace the battery at least once a year, even if this
message does not appear.
A nickel-metal hydride battery (rechargeable battery)
in particular can deteriorate when left in the electronic
dictionary when you are not using it for long periods. Remove
the rechargeable battery as soon as possible.
• Make sure you turn off power before replacing the battery.
Changing the battery while power is on can cause history data,
settings, and other information to be deleted.
• Always replace the battery with a new AA-size alkaline battery or a fully
charged AA-size nickel-metal hydride battery (rechargeable battery).
Using a battery other than those specified can greatly shorten battery
life and cause abnormal operation.
• When changing to a rechargeable battery, be sure to change the
battery type setting to “Ni-MH (Rechargeable)”.
Battery Precautions
Using a battery incorrectly can cause it to burst or leak, possibly
damaging the interior of the unit. Note the following precautions:
• Be sure that the positive (+) and negative (–) ends of the battery are
facing in the correct directions.
• Do not expose batteries to direct
heat, let them become shorted, or
try to take them apart.
• Never leave a dead battery in the battery
compartment.
• Remove the battery if you do not plan to use
your electronic dictionary for a long time.
• Never try to recharge the battery that comes
with your electronic dictionary.
76
• Should a battery leak, clean out the battery compartment immediately,
taking care to avoid letting battery fluid come into direct contact with
your skin.
• Should battery fluid ever get into your eyes, take the following steps
immediately. Failure to do so can result in loss of eyesight.
1. Rinse your eyes with clean water, without rubbing them.
2. Contact a physician immediately.
Battery
• Use only the specified battery charger for the battery you are using to
charge it.
• There is no way to recharge a battery without removing it from the
electronic dictionary.
• Before using a rechargeable battery or its special charger unit, be sure
to read and follow the instructions and precautions that come with
them.
• Recommended Battery
